John Galliano to teach master class at Parsons

NEW YORK (AP) — John Galliano is continuing his path back to the fashion world with a planned stop at Parsons The New School of Design in New York City.

The college said Monday that Galliano will teach a master class that will address the “challenges and complications” of leading a design house.

Parsons said the spring workshop will give students the opportunity to have a “frank conversation” with the designer.

Galliano was creative director at Christian Dior when he was fired in 2011 for an anti-Semitic rant, which is a crime in France. He’s currently involved in a lawsuit against his former employer.

He began a temporary artist residency at the studio of Oscar de la Renta in New York earlier this year.

The Parsons statement said Galliano has tried to make amends for his behavior.
